Build for my Brother

Recommended Posts

 

The A10 however is a VERY weak CPU, it acts more like a dual core due to the module design and PUBG from my testing likes at a minimum 4 strong cores or 6 weaker cores.  It really does better with higher single threaded performance, but is capable of splitting across 6+ threads.  

 

 

 

 

Would it be a waste of money to buy a better cpu to pop into this system?

Not up to date with amd systems anymore, what mb is in that system? Will it support an fx cpu ? If not maybe a fx 6300 and a mb might be the way to go .They are pretty decent gaming combos.

That A10 is sadly FM2+, so it's already one of the faster CPUs on the platform.  The AM3 FX stuff uses the same weak cores but you would have the option of double the cores, but at this point I don't know that a new AM3 board/cpu etc would be worth it.  For keeping it cheap a solid option would be searching around places like Craigslist, you've got a GPU so the hard part's there just a matter of finding a CPU/mobo deal.

Ok, so my brother has the money and is ready to start ordering parts. We are in Canada so keep that in mind with the prices. I am using newegg .ca for the buildup but will compare to other vendors before I actually make the order.

 

We already have : GPU and HDD. 

 

This is what I am looking at so far.

 

Phanteks Eclipse P300            $69.99

ASROCK AB350 Pro4             $129.99

EVGA 500w Semi Modular      $64.99

G.SKILL Ripjaws  8GB             $99.99

Ryzen 3 1300X                         $164.99

 

Total is $530 before taxes and shipping. Do you guys see any mistakes or better ways to go with this? Should more money be put on the table to get a more future resistant build?
